A group of elementary students got a unique chance to blend sports and science during their trip to Coors Field Wednesday for the 5th annual Weather and Science day with the Colorado Rockies.
Third, fourth and fifth grade students from Sunset Ridge, Fairview, Westminster and Skyline Vista elementary schools earned the opportunity to go as part of a TCAP motivation program shared by the four schools.
Students took part in weather lessons from the local 9news weather team, had a lesson on physics, ate lunch at the stadium and were able to stay for the Colorado Rockies in the afternoon against the San Francisco Giants. The physics segment of the day also served as a successful attempt at breaking the Guinness World Record for the largest physics lesson.
CSU’s Little Shop of Physics taught the subject to more than 10,000 students from throughout Colorado who spent the day at Coors field.
